I used to like the old mimeograph copies we used to get in school, too...

Oooh yes, I love that musty smell of the Archives at the library. I could live there.

I know this sounds wierd, but the smell of old mouldering cardboard screams CHIRSTMAS to me.

Everyone in my house was allergic to live trees so we had an artificial one that only came out once a year, the rest of the year it was sealed in an ancient cardboard box and stuffed in the attic.

Lets see, the aroma of ravioli sauce simmering on the stove, the smell of garlic and onions even on my hands after working with them, yeast after it is mixed to make a sponge, and the bread baking,the tartness of a good vinegar as you mix a vinegrette,a ripe melon as you cut into it. Ripe peaches and apricots.. popcorn popping, the smell of the tom and jerry my dad use to brew up on christmas .That yummy smell when you tuck your nose into one of your grandbabies necks.. Towels full of that fresh sunshine smell as you take them down to fold..NOT the dryer sheets, but hung in the sun The smell of love when your dear ones hug you..

I grew up on a farm in Iowa, so some of my favorites are a little different.

I love the smell of:
  • freshly plowed fields
  • freshly cut lucerne (hay) and haystacks
  • the clean, fresh smell following rain
  • the smell of the seasons - each season has a distinctive smell
  • musty barns
  • leather (saddles, boots - - check your local Western Wear store)
In the kitchen:
  • bread baking
  • popcorn
  • coffee
  • vanilla
  • cilantro (& other herbs/spices)
  • nutmeg

I'm in the middle of cooking a huge batch of tomato sauce since I harvested my first big arm load of ripe tomatoes this am so at the moment, I'd have to say that. Every room in the house smells like basil, garlic, wine and tomatoes! Yum!

I'd have to say basil, cilantro, lemon, coffee, bread baking, pasta sauce(tomatoe), pot roast, bacon, turkey. Non kitchen aromas...men's cologne, puppies, rain, bed sheets fresh from the dryer, and the ocean.
